Speaking at the 2020 Girl Up Leadership Summit, the former Duchess of Sussex used her real name rather than her royal titles.
After she married into the Royal Family Meghan began to use her formal title of Her Royal Highness, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
However, it was agreed neither she nor Princ Harry would no longer use these titles as part of their decision to step down as senior members of the Royal Family.
Appearing via videolink at the Girl Up Summit Meghan Markle used her full name for the first time since departing the Royal Family.
Since they couple’s split from the Royal Family they have usually referred to themselves as Harry and Meghan.
In her speech Meghan also appeared to throw in a little dig against the Royal Family.
She added: “I want to share something with you.
“It’s that those in the halls and corridors and places of power, from lawmakers and world leaders to executives, all of those people, they depend on you more than you will ever depend on them.
“And here’s the thing: they know this.”
This comes after Harry and Meghan came under fire for their recent comments about the Commonwealth in a video call for equal rights with youth leaders.
Prince Harry said: “When you look across the Commonwealth, there is no way that we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past… and guess what, everybody benefits.”
Meghan added: “We’re going to have to be a little uncomfortable right now, because it’s only in pushing through that discomfort that we get to the other side of this and find the place where a high tide raises all ships.”
